Day two of my challenge! ‘Six days to simple mindfulness and relaxation’ – today is all about taste

Day two of my challenge is here and we are concentrating on taste today. Yum, my favourite!

I want you to think about everything that you taste today (obviously if you are blessed with the sense of taste)

Everything you eat or drink, whether it’s a meal or a snack, a cup of tea or a glass of water.

This practise can even be good for eating issues and can be a great comfort for us generally.
Really ‘taste’ everything and enjoy the flavour. Eat or drink ‘mindfully’. The idea is that you take in ‘everything’ that you taste, in detail. If you are really concentrating, you cannot be worrying or on auto-pilot at the same time.

If it’s a drink, is it warm, cold or hot? Is it strongly flavoured or mild?

If it’s food, what texture is it? How does it taste? Is it delicious? If not, why not? Try something else.

Hopefully this is easy for you.

Really tasting our food, chewing it properly, enjoying it – it is all good for our digestion, our feeling of fullness, our comfort within, and it can be soothing and uplifting. So, just try to concentrate on what you taste today and I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I will.

Catch you tomorrow, I hope, for some more simple ‘sense’ mindfulness techniques.
